My Dad's Funeral

I had no reason to believe that my dad's funeral wouldn't be religious. It was at the church where my parents were married and so my mom chose the very same Calvary Temple to have his service. I was asked to read from the bible, if either I or my half sister would read it. Since she made all sorts of excuses not to read it, I ended up doing it.

Hello All!

When I first realized that there were different religions in the world, that was one thing that got me thinking about what I was told to believe. When I realized that there were many different genres of books in the library, I asked my mom what type the bible was. All I got was, "It's not a book, it's the bible".
